Mussar Middot Exploration
Meets as Scheduled

Mussar - Exercise For Your Soul You exercise your body and mind, but what about your soul? The study and practice of Mussar will do just that. Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe defines Mussar as "building an interior world." When you have a strong spiritual core, you can be the best version of your self and your relationships with others will be enhanced greatly. The Talmud teaches that each of us is gifted with a holy soul. Furthermore, whether or not the light from that soul shines brightly out into the world is more than a choice, it's a responsibility. Mussar offers a framework of spiritual learning and practice to guide us in fulfilling that responsibility by focusing awareness on our middot, soul traits. Together we will delve into Mussar using methods drawn from the Mussar Institute,, Through text study, group reflection, meditation, journaling and targeted practices that balance and align your character traits (exercises for your soul), Mussar cultivates personal growth and unveils the light within. Mussar Classes Spring 2018 In Spring 2018, two va'ads (groups) will be lead by TST member and TST Center for Jewish Spirituality co-chair, Caryl Shaw, a Mussar group facilitator certified by The Mussar Institute. Together we will exercise our souls through text study, group discussion, study with a chevruta (partner), journaling, and targeted practices.
